Tangier is a town on Tangier Island in Chesapeake Bay. It is a part of Accomack County, Virginia. As of the 2000 census, the town had a total population of 604. The tiny island community has attracted the attention of linguists because its people speak a totally unique dialect of American English, theorized to be nearly unchanged since the days of its first occupation by English colonists.
